Jay Manuel – LG Fashion Week S/S 2012
Tuesday night Jay Manuel’s (known as Mr. Jay on America’s Next Top Model) Attitude line for Sears closed the night! It was a packed show as usual. At first I was a bit worried as to what his designs would be like, thinking their would be more suits than anything, however Jay surprised me, and others on his collection for Spring/Summer 2012. As runway crews peeled back the clear film from off a very shiny new runway, all you’re thinking is something is bound to happen! Add dry ice to the mixture and drama is about to unfold!
Putting the slippery runway and dry ice aside, Jay Manuel’s collection was very resort inspired, reminding me of something you’d wear out in Miami, Brazil or poolside in Vegas! Lots of brights, patterns & prints, and flowing fabrics made me feel as if Toronto was still in summer mode, and I was jet setting off to an exotic location able to wear this stunning collection.
As for accessories, we saw a lot of fedoras, head turbans, over-sized sunglasses, feathered earrings and statement necklaces! This collection is a must for Spring/Summer!
